Loew Cornell painting pen?

Anyone ever used one of these for stone chips / scratches?

I'm tempted to get one to try, but I am wondering if I would be wasting my time as my paint is metallic and hence contains flakes which are (I presume) going to clog the "nib" much faster than a solid colour would (if it works at all).

Anyone any experiences to share?

Ordered one bud after you put it on here but haven't received it as of yet but will let you know as my car has a deep chip on the bonnet and it's silver metallic which isn't the easiest to get a match

If it doesn't do the job then DR colour chip will be ordered

I take it you seen it in the Ammo NYC video?
I was listning to a podcast where Larry said it was a great product but price jumped after his video on the 911 always wondered would a fine needle do the same job.

Just googling as I've got a stone chips and a scratch on my car which I'm going to repair myself.
The tool is first class at stone chips!!
My wonder is should I mix colour and clear coat next time to get a better blend when finally sanding and then buffing????
